Re: Your opinion about this artist

A:
You're not an "art critic", you're an artist. This work you refer to repelled you and your reaction was to inform the artist that his efforts are misguided and he should do something different, not art. It's harsh, to say the least and even cruel to a degree. It could only hurt since there's a good chance he's not going to follow your counsel. If hurting someone for their own good was your intention, maybe that needs to be looked at. One of the marvels of being alive is watching cherished opinions wither in the light of new information. Uncomfortable if you try to hang on to them...wonderful when you see their narrowness and say "good riddance!"
